Children’s Picture Books

Walaikum assalam,

The fatwa of leading Hanafi scholars from Syria, Iraq, and elsewhere, is that pictures in children’s books take the same ruling as dolls for children: they are permitted to buy and sell, because they too serve a similar (if not even more obvious) educational interest. Many (or even most) Hanafi scholars from the Indian Subcontinent disagree.

And Allah alone gives success.
